Obama's overall approval rating is limping along at 44 percent, and things get worse from there. Obama's numbers dipped in every single category measured, sustaining the biggest hits on economy-related issues.

One wonders if the fact that household incomes are down during this 'recovery' while 97 percent of all net job growth in 2013 is attributable to part-time hiring may be driving these figures.

Hmmmm ... ya think?

In other news, Obama, while on vacation again, commented from behind the wheel of his golf cart that his approvals ratings are "phony".

Yeah that's a stellar example of liberal hypocrisy. I don't recall any calls for FBI and DOJ investigations, let alone people losing their jobs and others having to take sensitivity training when some clown threw out an HW Bush dummy in a rodeo and let a bull tear it's head off.

BUT ... in libbieland if you make fun of Obama you stand a good chance of having the NAACP and the New Black Panty Party putting out a hit on you faster than you can say Hope & Change!

He's been showing up regularly in DC as a clown but apparently people think life's a circus and keep electing him.

I'm thinking the House republican's approval rating, must be up to 7-9%....especially after a 5 week vacation, from doing nothing....

Link? Or are those just more 'facts' you're pulling from your azz?
BTW...IIRC, the Democrat approval rating isn't much better than that of Republicans. Seems the voters of this country are fed up with the lot of them, but your special blinders only let you see one side. Obama shill.

Right...seems the more he talks about it (and brings attention to it), the lower those numbers get. He needs to learn when to stop talking and start doing.

C'mon Vox, you know that is is only the House that isn't doing anything. The Senate is working their behinds off, the media just refuses to cover the Senate because Harry Reid would show his ugly mug on TV, yet again. And we know that Queen Nancy hasn't done a thing in months, but that's okay with Blue.

It makes me wonder why there isn't a stronger movement to remove EVERY ONE of them from office and replace them with people who will work in harmony to fix the problems. And if some of them don't work out, get rid of them also.
The tea party movement and the occupy movement were and are a joke.
We need to take back our government. It's supposed to be "by the people, for the people" and ahs not been so for too long.
Democrap and Republican't party lines be damned.

Totally agree with you Wiggley. The Tea Party would be a force if they would stick to their guns and stand for something consistently. And it is not just Republicans in the Tea Party. There are Dems in it as well. They are NOT a majority however, and I think they are given far too much credit for the grid lock in DC these days. The gridlock is because the entitlement crowd of Senators and Congressmen refuse to do anything because they don't think the public is paying attention. And most of the public isn't.

Nothing will change until the progressive policies, especially Obamacare, begin to effect the people who ignorantly buy into what the media has told them.

The only reason Obama's approval ratings have plummeted is because the progressive spin masters haven't successfully figured out a way to fully deflect the scandals that have begun to effect even the most ignorant of his followers. The useful idiots don't care about Fast & Furious, Solyndra, or some people getting killed in Benghazi. But they do care when they find out their own phone calls are being traced. AND, they definitely will care when they find out Obamacare is going to raise their premiums, force many who otherwise wouldn't need insurance to pay through the nose, and that the same 30 million people who Obama claimed weren't being covered previously STILL won't be covered under his catastrophe.

There's a reason beyond ineptness for the democraps to be stalling on key components of Obamacare until after the elections. It's the same reason that Obama's approvals are plunging - it's called REALITY.

So you can only find fault with "progressives" and democraps?
Are you then implying we should blindly follow the republicants?
Do you have something constructive to offer or are you just going to keep complaining?

The libertarians are Americas only hope, that and term limits for Senators and Representatives. The Dems have become European socialists while the Repubs have issues with social freedoms and are both becoming more extreme day by day.

"And it is not just Republicans in the Tea Party. There are Dems in it as well."

What an absolute crock!

You'll note that because you ALWAYS fail to provide a link to your baseless claims I did the Google search myself. Imagine my shock (NOT!) when I couldn't find a single Democrat that supports the radical right wing baggers!

Not my fault that you go to Wikipedia that is known for fools such as yourself changing the content to suit their purposes. Unless you wish to have the dunce hat sewn permanently to your head, you will start looking at reliable, honest links instead of something that will say what YOU want it to say. I have provided the link on other occasions. Not my problem that you can't be bothered to read them. Grow up Bob.

Did you edit the page yourself Bob? That way it reflected just what you wanted it to say?

Well, your rude comment aside, I've supported the Tea Party's message all along and think that makes for a pretty "constructive" starting point for a solution. I believe this is a true grassroots organization, despite what the democrat crap machine is telling people. Yes, some have accepted donations from rich people like the Koche Bros. Yes, they've welcomed politicians support and been burned by them because, well, politicians lie and change their minds depending on how the corrupt winds blow. Yes, faux conservatives have glommed on to their group and made them look like fools. But their core values and message have remained the same. Fiscal responsibility, smaller govt., personal rights protection, etc.- their core values are well-advertised, and unlike the progressive counterpart OWS, they're not about loafing around and demanding something for nothing.

The media supported the OWS while mocking the Tea Party at every opportunity. They clearly showed no integrity in their biased spin of both organizations, one who committed crimes, burned American flags, crapped on cop cars and harassed people, while the other held peaceful protests, cleaned up after themselves and showed respect and concern for America, not contempt.

So, to answer your rude question - no, I don't expect anyone to "blindly" follow anyone. I expect people to stop blindly following what a biased liberal media is spoon-feeding them and educate themselves. The evidence is out there if people are willing to look for it themselves instead of trusting the left blindly.
